SeaSucker Vacuum Cup

The SeaSucker Hornet is quick and easy to mount. To install the rack make sure the mounting surface is clean and place the rack on your roof, trunk, or window glass then press the pump several times until the orange band disappears. To break the seal and remove the rack from your vehicle simply pull the T-shaped tab up and towards the center of the cup. As suction decreases over time the plunger will extend from the cup. When the orange indicator band shows simply repump the plunger.

Video Transcript for SeaSucker Hornet Rear Window Bike Rack Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the SeaSucker Hornet Rear Window Bike Rack, part number: 298-BH1302. The SeaSucker Hornet allows you to carry one bike on the rear of your hatchback, minivan or SUV using the two vacuum cups. Suction holds them on place on your rear window without scratching the glass. The ratcheting straps hold your handlebars to the suction cups and your bike seat simply rests against your rear hatch. The whole system can carry one bike up to 35 pounds. It also includes one cam-buckle safety strap for additional stability and security. It includes a storage case for when they are not in use.

The great thing about this bike rack is, you won't need a hitch or a roof rack system to carry a bike. It is rated for speeds of up to 75 miles per hour. Now that we've gone through the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get them installed. First thing we need to do is install our safety strap. I'm going to open up my rear hatch. Now we can take the end with the black peg and we are going to put it down through the seam between the rear hatch and the body.

That way when it is closed it wedges and anchors it in place. I also want to position it to where it is in the center. Once we've got it in place, we can go ahead close it, and we've got it. Now we can go ahead and install our suction cups. To determine a good position for them, you'll need to pre-measure your handle bars. I've gone ahead and pre-measured mine.

I'm going to position mine here. You need to be sure that your strap is vertical, the buckle is on top and it can be slightly angled to accommodate our curved handle bars. We'll need to moisten the outer edge of each one of our vacuum cups. It doesn't take much. Then we can turn it back over, reposition it.

We're going to come over to our push cylinder and we will push the pump cylinder repeatedly until the orange band disappears. We'll repeat the same process on the other side. As you can see, they are not going anywhere. We can go ahead and undo our straps. Now let's put our bike in place. I'll set my handlebars in the indentations. With my handlebars in place, I'm going to hold onto my bike and then tighten up my straps. Then we can rest our seat onto our hatch. Then we'll take our safety strap, I'm going to run it around my head tube, so inside here, and back up through the buckle. It doesn't need to be extremely tight, it is just a safety strap to prevent the bike from falling off in case of a catastrophic event. With our bike in place, we're all set to go. Now on extended trips, you want to please note that if you start to see the orange band on your pump cylinder, all you've got to do is come up and push it a few times just to reinsure you have a good seal. With everything secure, let's go ahead and take it out on our test course and see how it performs. Here on our test course, let's first go into our slalom. This is going to show side-to-side action, such as going around corners or evasive maneuvering. Then onto our alternating speed bumps. This is going to show a twisting action, such as going over potholes or uneven pavement. Then finally, onto our solid speed bumps. This is going to show an up-and-down action, such as pulling in and out of a driveway or parking lot. That's going to complete our look at the SeaSucker Hornet Rear Window Bike Rack, part number: 298-BH1302.

Clever idea but difficult to mount a bike if you have angled handlebars. Plus seems a bit sketchy--you have to check the mounts every 4 hours as they lose suction. 570914

Do you have a question about this Trunk Bike Rack?


  • Recommended 2-Bike Rack for 2017 Nissan Rogue with Factory Spoiler
  • I do have some possible solutions for you, however I show that all of the available standard trunk-mount bike racks for the 2017 Nissan Rogue, like the Thule # TH910XT referenced in your question, are not considered a fit for models with a spoiler. I recommend looking at the SeaSucker Hornet Rear Window Bike Rack # 298-BH1302. This unique system uses 2 vacuum cups with ratcheting straps that attach to the rear window of your vehicle and can carry 1 bike by the handlebars. I have attached...

  • Will a Trunk Mount Bike Rack or Other Rack Fit a 2016 Lexus RX 350
  • The only trunk mount rack that will work with your 2016 Lexus RX 350 is the SeaSucker Hornet # 298-BH1302. It uses vacuum cups to secure to a flat, clean rear glass window. The connection is strong but it only holds 1 bike. Other trunk mounts will not work because the design of the vehicle prohibits the proper connections needed to safely use a trunk mount rack. To carry more than 1 bike I recommend installing a trailer hitch, # C13272, and using a hitch mounted bike rack such as the...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2017 Jeep Renegade
  • There are a few trunk mount bike rack options available for the 2017 Jeep Renegade. The only traditional style trunk mount bike rack is the Yakima HangOut bike rack, # Y02637 for 2 bikes or # Y02638 for 3 bikes. This bike rack uses 6 nylon straps that hook to the top, side and bottom edges of the rear hatch. I've attached a demonstration video on a Renegade for you to check out. If the thought of having a bike rack hooking to your rear door doesn't sound appealing, you may want...

  • Bike Rack Options for a 2013 Toyota Highlander
  • We have several bike rack options for your 2013 Toyota Highlander. It sounds like you are interested in a trunk mount style bike rack. Due to the spoiler at the top of your rear hatch, the only trunk mount bike rack options that are available are the Over-the-Top Bike Racks, 2-bike # HRF2 and 3-bike # HRF2-3. I have attached a review video of these bike racks for you to check out. We also offer the SeaSucker Hornet, part # 298-BH1302. This is a single bike carrier that uses vacuum cups...

  • Trunk Bike Rack Fit Recommendation for 2013 Nissan Rogue with Spoiler
  • The bike rack in the picture you submitted is the Hollywood Racks Over the Top part # HRF2 which is not a fit for your 2013 Nissan Rogue with a spoiler. Instead the only option we have is the SeaSucker Hornet part # 298-BH1302 which is a confirmed fit and would work well.

  • Bike Rack Options For A 3 Bike Carrier On A 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
  • Although we do not currently carry a trunk mount back rack option that allows you to carry multiple bikes on your 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, I do have another solution that will allow you to carry three bikes. The only trunk mount bike rack option we currently have as a fit for your vehicle is our SeaSucker Hornet Rear Window Bike Rack part # 298-BH1302 which only carries one bike. This leaves you with two options. Option A involves the installation of one of our trailer hitches...

  • Recommended Bike Rack For 2015 Range Rover Sport
  • The only trunk mounted bike rack that we have that is compatible with your 2015 Range Rover Sport is the SeaSucker Hornet Rear Window Bike Rack - Handlebar Mount - Vacuum Cup Mounted # 298-BH1302. To carry two bikes, you would need to use 2 of these carriers. My recommendation is to use a roof rack and bike rack. For this, I recommend the Rhino-Rack roof rack comprised of: Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 59" Long - Qty 2 # RRVA150B-2 Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs...

  • Bike Rack to Fit at Rear of 2018 Keystone Bullet Premier 30 RIPR
  • I really wish I could recommend a SeaSucker at the rear of an RV but the RV's have a much rougher ride quality that this rack is not rated for. Looks like your RV has a 4 inch square bumper though so you could instead install the Swagman bike rack part # S80501 which would work well as it is rated for RVs. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • Best Bike Rack for 2017 Toyota Sienna for Transporting 1 or 2 Bikes
  • The best way to transport bikes on any vehicle is almost always a hitch. This is so because hitch-mount bike racks use the car's frame - its single strongest part - to handle the weight load of the rack and bikes instead of the car's relatively thin sheet metal. Once you add into the equation sometimes-delicate cosmetic features like spoilers hitch racks make a lot of sense. Still, if you're going to transport only 1 or 2 bikes of nominal weight then you can use a trunk-mount rack like...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for 2006 Honda CR-V
  • We have a trunk mounted bike rack that is a confirmed fit for your 2006 Honda CR-V but it's not the Sportrack you mentioned. Instead we have the SeaSucker Hornet Rear Window Bike Rack # 298-BH1302 that uses vacuum cups to attach to the rear of the vehicle.

  • Does SeaSucker Hornet part # 298-BH1302 Fit Both 2016 Honda CR-V and 2017 Acura RDX
  • For both your 2017 Acura RDX and the 2016 Honda CR-V the SeaSucker Hornet part # 298-BH1302 is a confirmed fit. You could get by with just one of these for both of your vehicles. The vacuum cups do not leave marks either.

  • Recommended Trunk Mounted Bike Rack For 2013 Toyota Highlander
  • For your 2013 Toyota Highlander, the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier # HRF2 is the best option to carry your bike. For security, I recommend you use a cable lock like # CAB-10 and a security strap like # TH533. These will secure your bike to your rack and the rack to your locked hatch. The only single bike option for your vehicle we carry is the SeaSucker Hornet Rear Window Bike Rack - Handlebar Mount - Vacuum Cup Mounted # 298-BH1302 which does not provide much stability...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Acura MDX with Spoiler
  • Yakima has confirmed that their HalfBack 2 Bike Rack, # Y02636, will fit on the 2012 Acura MDX with the rear spoiler and they say the upper hooks must be changed and installed in anchor mode for this vehicle. The concern with the spoiler at the top of the rear hatch is that most spoilers are not designed to hold additional weight. With trunk mounted bike racks, the straps pull on the spoiler, more so when the bikes are loaded. This can warp and deform plastic or lightweight spoilers....

It's also the only option since you have the spoiler and and don't want to go the hitch route. I attached an install picture that shows the rack in use for you to check out as well.

Out of the available selection I recommend going with the SeaSucker Hornet Rear Window Bike Rack # 298-BH1302. This mounts via vacuum cups which have a 120 lb per cup weight rating.
